    Checking with my bank, I notice Ive paid 3.81 (inc charges) to the French govt for that vignette thingy.

    A darn sight cheaper than the 29.65 wanted by the crit-air app!!!
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    It depends on which number/colour you have. That said, my van is too old to qualify but that hasn't stopped us going everywhere we wanted to go.

    5 vehicles in four countries. Hobby in Germany, Airstream Cutter in USA, MCI MH & OKA 4WD in Oz,
    I downloaded the App and nothing is active for months in advance.
    I understood that many of the zones are only activated a day in advance so you really need to check the route no earlier than the previous day.

    Just been looking at website mentioned earlier in the thread , very informative although maybe still a little difficult to fully understand. Anyway we have been given cat 5 for our 2010 autotrail Mohawk on a fiat ducatto 2.3.cat 5 seems to be for older vehicles. Have I got the right end of the stock here?

    It depends on both the (Euro category of the engine or the year of manufacture) and the max gross weight. I suspect that your Mohawk might well be over 3.5 tonnes MGW, which would give you a 'worse' Crit'Air number. For example, a motorhome with a Euro 4 engine would have Crit'Air 3 if under 3.5 tonnes MGW but Crit'Air 4 if over 3.5 tonnes.

    FWIW, this is the reason why I can't get a Crit'Air sticker -- my van is 3850kg MGW. If it was under 3500kg, it would qualify for Crit'Air 4.

    HTH, Geoff

    Really simple

    I have just ordered my sticker and the process was really easy.
